The Highest Road In New Hampshire Will Lead You On An Unforgettable Winter Journey
There are tons of high peaks in New Hampshire, but hiking to the summit isn’t for everyone. In fact, hiking, in general, isn’t for everyone. Instead, we love the idea of driving comfortably to the top of some of the highest summits in the Granite State. The best way to do it? On the Mount Washington Auto Road. You’ve certainly heard of it — and maybe even done it — but did you know you can do it in the winter, too? Ditch your own car and take the Snow Coach!
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
To see the SnowCoach in action, take a look at this video:
TheSnowCoach operates daily but is always weather permitting. If conditions are dangerous, the trip doesn’t happen. Tickets are $55 for adults/seniors and $30 for kids. If you’d like to take a sunrise trip, tickets are $99 for adults/seniors and $50 for kids. They offer deals on certain days and advance reservations are always recommended. Though, if you’d like to take your chances, walk-in ticket sales start at 8:30 a.m. For more information and the online calendar and reservation system, click here.
